The race took place on a 3.2 mile beach and road course, located south of Daytona Beach

Is it cheating if I have to look up the question in the first place? :D

You have everything right except where Mr. Kretz is from. According to the source I used, he was from Monterey Park, CA.

Now, can you tell me the nickname given to the race in the early years? :D
